On my acoustic guitar I have my strap attached at the bottom of the body and at the top of the neck above the nut. I read somewhere that this is bad and that the strap should be attached where the neck and body join. Is this true, because I don't want to damage my guitar. Thanks!

No. Whoever told you that is a moron. Tying your strap underneath your strings is the common way of using a strap with an acoustic that does not have an extra strap button.

Well good, because I think it looks better this way anyway.

I thought acoustics were made to be strapped like that...

Yeh, it wont hurt your guitar. I once heard that it can cause your neck to bow due to the weight of the guitar also but its a complete myth.

They weren't made specifically to be strapped that way, rather the mfr's omitted the second strap button on some models and left the install decision to the customer. Many people don't want to have to drill the necessary hole into the neck for that button. If you just paid $3000 for a Martin HD-28 would YOU want to get a nasty sharp drill bit anywhere near it? Me neither! Although in reality, they could easily install the button at the factory prior to finishing and have it a permanent part of the guitar from the get go. Your choice, string it at the headstock, or drill into the heel of th neck.
